I use Victor Fly Catcher.
It is the old style fly paper that comes in little tubes. You put a
thumbtack into the ceiling and pull and turn the tube. Out comes paper
covered with sticky. No insecticide. I have found that it works
extremely well for Drosophila. It works far less well for Musca
I buy it at Home Depot. They only carry it in the Spring. Buy a case,
its cheap and it keeps.
